MSIs are extracted to wherever your workstation's TEMP environment variable resolves to, which is normally '[UserProfileFolder]\Local Settings\Temp'.

jre-6u6-windows-i586-p-iftw.exe is the EXE one would use to install via the Web, what Sun calls on 'Online installation'.
Download and run the OFFLINE version, jre-6u6-windows-i586-p.exe. THAT will produce an MSI.

this .exe is given to me by my client Like so many, your client needs educating, about web-bsed installs.

I just want to check with you that both web .exe and normal .exe is same or is there some difference ? Just leave the difference in the names !!!! Is that a serious question?!?

Web-based installs install from the web, copying only temporary files and no installation "media" (such as the source MSI) whereas local EXEs install from local media. In this case, it includes the source MSI. Besides anything else, looking at the download size on the web site should have provided you with a massive clue!
